So what im thinking of, is clothing that looks like normal clothing, but it really has Kevlar, or any other bullet/melee protecting armor under it. These could be very weak but very stealthy as to if or if you arent actually wearing armor, this could be good for people who like to look like they are weaker than they really are.

Yeah, as kevlar would probably be something exclusive to police stations, but like a said before, anything with protective properties would be cool, or having multiple of them

A low grade/level kevlar vest is something we could find to combine it with the a top... that with chain-mail sleeves might offer better protection and saves time making the chest piece.

Just to add a thought toward body protection involving "bullet-proof" vests, that when you get shot you still go down but just not out.

I like that idea quite a lot, if we could combine that with a full-body suit that would be awesome

Just learnt about stab vests
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stab_vest

Should be suitable to wear under a long sleeved top or jacket. Would be good protection vs zombies and light fire arms.

'Concealable Stab-Protective Body Armor

The Concealable Stab-Protective Body Armor (CSPBA) is a stab vest, worn by United States Army personnel performing law enforcement operations, including confinement of enemy prisoners of war and overseeing civilian internees, for protection against homemade weapons and handguns. The CSPBA provides soft armor protection to the torso against a 9mm, full metal jacket 124-grain bullet and meets the California Ice Pick standard for protection against other crude stab/slash weapons.'

That could definitely be cool! Maybe something low-key so that people don't turn into bullet sponges. They would also have to be quite rare, as most people don't just fetch their ballistic-resistant apparel from the bottom of their sock drawer haha. But something to stop an extra bullet or two while being easily concealable under a hoodie?

Effective, realistic, would love to see it! I'm glad we're thinking of practical additions here too. Some people's suggestions are along the lines of Master Chief armor and a rechargeable shield that simultaneously wipes your butt for you. Keep it real people!
